SEC573: Automating Information Security with Python
The challenges faced by security professionals are constantly evolving, so there is a huge demand for those who can understand a technology problem and quickly develop a solution. If you have to wait on a vendor to develop a tool to recover a forensics artifact, or to either patch or exploit that new vulnerability, then you will always be behind. It is no longer an option for employers serious about information security to operate without the ability to rapidly develop their own tools. This course will give you the skills to develop solutions so that your organization can operate at the speed of the adversary. SEC573 is an immersive, self-paced, hands-on, and lab-intensive course. After covering the essentials required for people who have never coded before, the course will present students with real-world forensics, defensive, and offensive challenges. You will develop a malware dropper for an offensive operation; learn to search your logs for the latest attacks; develop code to carve forensics artifacts from memory, hard drives, and packets; automate the interaction with an online website's API; and write a custom packet sniffer. Through fun and engaging labs, youll develop useful tools and build essential skills that will make you the most valuable member of your information security team.
